Back when i was a child Before life removed all the innocence My father would lift me high And dance with my mother and me and then Spin me around 'til i fell asleep Then up the stairs he would carry me And i knew for sure i was loved If i could get another chance another walk another dance with him I'd play a song that would never ever end Cause i love love love to dance with my father again Ooooo oooh When i and my mother would disagree To get my way i would run from her to him He'd make me laugh just to comfort me And finally make me do just what my momma said Later that night when i was asleep He left a dollar under my sheet Neva dreamed that he would be gone from me If i could steal one final glance one final step one finaldance with him I'd play a song that would never ever end How i love love to dance with my father again Some times i listen outside her door And hear how my mother cried for him I prayed for her even more than me I prayed for her ever more than me I know i'm praying for much too much But could you send back the only man she loved I know you don't do i usually but dear lord she dying To dance tih my father again Every night i fall asleep this all i ever dream
